Ben Medansky partners with Koio to make a pair of sneakers inspired by ceramics

Ben Medansky partners with Koio to make a ceramics inspired shoe

Has there even been a pair of shoes whose design were inspired by ceramics? Not to my knowledge, and that’s what makes this collaboration between Los Angeles ceramicist Ben Medansky and New York shoe brand Koio so remarkable. Medansky is well-known for his bold ceramics, which feature speckled glazes and pops of Yves Klein blues, odd, geometric clusters, and repetition of angular shapes.

Applying those same principles to a pair of sneakers sounds challenging, but the resulting outcome couldn’t have turned out more perfect. What catches your eyes first is obviously the cobalt blue sole of the shoe, which is such a stunning color. Complimenting it is the speckled leather uppers which bring a nice balance to the shoe, as it would be in Medansky’s ceramic works.

“The speckle on the leather was appropriated from the clay body I use that has a high iron content. I also wanted to create something that I had not seen before which led me to the ceramic accent on the laces that I call shoellery, like jewellery for the shoe.”

I think the “shoellery” is such a fun, quirky detail. In a time of Off-White zip ties it’s refreshing to see a natural material being integrated into a shoe like this. All in all it’s an unusual but beautifully executed collaboration. You can snag a pair of these for yourself by clicking here.

Watch: Jon Hopkins teases upcoming album with a mesmerizing new video

Watch: Jon Hopkins teases upcoming album with new video

Jon Hopkins is one of those artists whose music is hard to define. It’s otherworldly and complex, sometimes aggressive but often placid, even meditative. Now, five years since his last proper album Immunity was released, there’s something new coming.

I’m so happy to share some brand new music with you. There is much more news to come soon, but this is where it begins.

If you can, please watch in HD, with full screen and on headphones.

love Jon

Directed by Stephen McNally
Thanks to Blink Industries

The track features his signature driving base sound with a wavey rhythm of synths hovering above it. It feels like Hopkins this time around is in a peaceful, sort of meditative state in his life. And I might be crazy, but at around the :52 mark, does it sound like some signature Thom Yorke warbles thrown in there? I would absolutely love a Jon Hopkins and Thom Yorke duet!

Color Inspiration: Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter ’18 collection

Color Inspiration: Marc Jacobs Fall/Winter '18 Show

I’m always looking for inspiration for my projects and the world of fashion is always fertile ground to draw from. Last week, Marc Jacobs showed his FW18 collection at New York Fashion Week and it was a stunning affair. He sent down the runway a love letter to 1980’s haute couture, made up of exaggerated over coats, layers of scarves, and dramatic hats that transformed models into mysterious femme fatales.

What really spoke to me were the striking color combinations and the intense contrast of each piece that made the show all the more profound. The hues were vibrant and jewel-like, which radiated against deep shades of olive, plum, and blacks. The palette is certainly evocative of the 80’s but thanks to his styling and color pairings these look feel contemporary and of the now.

I’ve pulled swipe from Marc Jacobs personal and brand Instagrams to give a more comprehensive look of the output and the decisions that went into the clothes. I mean, how cool are the hairdos below? Those gradients are everything. Hopefully this sparks some ideas in your own work!

How Paul Rand presented logos to clients

Paul Rand client logo presentation

Mason began, “The trade mark, which in the spacious days before the invention of the corporate image could afford to live in a measure of ornamental luxury, has today become a sharply functional thing, a bright weapon for the attack on the overworked and often sluggish attention of the public. Not only must it serve as the focal point of corporate design programmes: it is often the only medium through which large sectors of the public identify a company and its products at all.

“The design of a trade mark thus becomes an undertaking of the most exacting acuity. Such a mark ‘should be distinctive, memorable, and reflect in some way, however abstractly, the nature of the product or service it represents. Furthermore, it should be practical and easily adapted to a variety of applications. It should be reproducible in one or two colours, in positive and reverse form, and in sizes as large as building signs and as small as, or smaller than, calling cards.’”

At the time the article was written, Paul Rand’s client presentations involved large, custom-made booklets of 20 to 40 pages, given to 25 to 100 top-ranking executives. “Characteristically, Rand avoids what he calls ‘sound, music and lights presentations.’ Believing that ‘graphic designers are really silent salesmen’, he thinks that trade marks should convince by their own impact and quality.”

Paul Rand client logo presentation Atlas Crankshaft Corporation (1964) and International Business Machines Corporation (1956). Paul Rand client logo presentation Ford (1966). “Although the new mark wasn’t adopted, its presentation remains an impressive example of the genre.”

A PDF of the six-page piece can be downloaded from the resources of Seattle-based Rationale. The full magazine issue is available from Graphis.

Related, from the archives, are some photos of the 100-page NeXT presentation that Paul Rand created for Steve Jobs, and a short video of Rand introducing his work to the NeXT team.
